Reflecting Back the year that was

Oh Boy! You and I both. I know! 2020 has been one strange year! I will not dwell on the pandemic, we have both experienced it’s effects in one way or the other. Just like you, I am thankful for making it this far and I am hopeful for better days ahead.

Come, let’s sit and reflect on the year that was. This year had it’s big share of negativity. Let us focus on the positives however small that we experienced. Let us dwell on the small stuff that can easily be dismissed as insignificant yet they were highly instrumental in keeping us going. Let us look for a silver lining in the dark clouds. What was your silver lining this year?

Perhaps, you were able to bond with your family in a way that you have never done before. This brought you closer than you could ever have imagined. Maybe, your mind was exposed to possibilities that you would not have foreseen in a million years and now, more than ever you are hopeful of a brighter future. Did you start a business that you never knew you had it in you?

One of my biggest reflection in 2020 was the realisation that time is scarce. It’s a limited resource. We may think we have time but the truth is we do not. You must therefore hurry up, stop procrastinating, do what you wish to do today and give it your all. There is no time to keep holding back on your dreams. There is no time to keep holding on grudges. There is no time to sit down and wallow in self pity and lack of motivation. 2020, made me realise, yet it has been very obvious before my eyes, that, time is not guaranteed. It is in fact a privilege that is denied to many. So, how do you choose to spend your time in 2021?

The year that was, showed me that my fears are unsubstantiated. My fears are an illusion that I created myself to deceitfully comfort me that I am fine just the way I am and that I should not to do different. This year has hence taught me to do different in the midst of my fears. I pray that you too can use your fears as fuel to propel you to another level. What are your fears as you head to 2021?

In the end as I look back, it’s not about the money that you made. It is not about the deals that you closed. It’s not about the goals that you smashed. Don’t get me wrong, all these are equally important in our journey. I mean, is that not why we work? Hold on a sec, 2020 reminded me, how did you make people feel? How many lives did you impact? How would you like to be remembered when you are gone? What legacy do you wanna leave behind?

Did any of my blog posts impact your life in any way? I wanna hear from you.

As you reflect on the year that was, I urge you to take an inventory of all the good, however small that you experienced and write it down. Then take a minute and be grateful from deep within your heart. After which, purpose to do better in 2021. Set your mind right to see not only all the good, but be the good in a world that has so little of it!

I am proud of you!
